Nowadays automotive accessories are highly preferred products among fans of tuning. They are divided into two groups: the first group includes accessories which carry useful functions and the second one includes items with decorative function. There are also products that unite both functions. Wheel covers are one of them, because in addition to the beautiful outlook, they protect the rims and discs from hits, dirt, dust, snow, etc.
What do you need to know when choosing wheel covers for your vehicle?
To make the right choice, you need to consider several factors:
- The material they are made of. Generally, most common are the plastic ones, but even in this case there is a difference in the material. There are soft and hard plastics, and the covers made of the first type of material are more reliable, more flexible and more resistant to impacts;
- Outdoor or indoor type. The first one is more beautiful and preferred by customers, but the second type protects more effectively the inside of the tire and the discs from contaminants;
- The size of the rim is also quite essential and must be taken into account when choosing;
- Design. It plays a crucial role in the overall aesthetics of the vehicle.
How to install them?
Installation is done in two ways - by jacking and nipping the rim, and the other is through the bolts holding the tire. The plastic clips option is more common because it is easy to replace.
Those who are fixed with bolts are not so common or wanted due to objective reasons. However, imagine that you have to deploy all bolts in order to remove the plastic utensil - quite inconvenient and time-consuming. However, it is best that this accessory is not often removed - our opinion.
Why do you need wheel covers?
These additional components perform several key functions. Decorative! We all know how wide is the variety of designs and shapes. These accessories are able to completely change the look of the car because they are the most prominent element of the exterior.
